A few reminders...

Dear parents/guardians,

 

Throughout your child's school experience, they will learn a great deal about many subjects. Reading is the single most important skill that a learner possesses because it is the gateway to all other learning. Without the ability to read, students struggle in school and everyday life. Simply put, students must learn to read. 

 

As a parent/guardian, the best thing you can do to help your child improve academically is to read with them. By putting a few strategies into action, you can make a significant contribution to your child's reading:


  • Make reading a positive experience by showing your excitement to read with your child.

  • When reading a book, point word by word as you read. This will help your child learn that reading goes from left to right and understand that the word they say is the word they see.

  • While reading, stop and ask questions about what is happening in the story and have your child predict what will happen next. 

  • Read your child's favorite book over and over again. Your child will gain confidence as they are able to successfully recognize words. 

  • When you have finished reading, have your child retell what happened in the story.

  • If your child is already able to read fluently, simply listen to them read and discuss the story with them or read a higher-level book to them.


Please continue to work with your child on the items mentioned above and never hesitate to communicate with your child's teacher. Thank you for trusting us with your children and feel free to contact us at 491-8044 if there is anything you need.


Thank you, and Go Rangers!

Dr. Josh Conley, Principal
